i don’t know about you but i always find it hard to decide on what i want to be for halloween.
why is it so difficult?!
i want to do something that people will know, but not that’s cliché.
i want to make it from scratch and have it look legit.
that takes time. and that means i have to decide on what i want to be way in advance. and you know what happens?
i can’t decide on one thing because i want to be everything!
well my turmoils are at an end because i finally settled on what i want to be!
i am going to be maleficent!
but not the black outfit one everyone will do…
i am going to be her before she was evil, before her wings were stolen, when she was a good fairy that protected the moors.
because i like to be unique remember? and worst case scenario, if no one knows i’m specifically maleficent, i will look like a really cool earthy kinda fairy thing.
YOU REALLY NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.
well, as usual i am a huge procrastinator…so i bought my fabric for the dress yesterday and i will start cutting and sewing today.
but first, let me write a post about it. HA!
now, i have researched a lot about how to make the wings and horns and the dress.
and i am going to share all the things i do along the way!
also, if you have any suggestions on how to create these things i will be more than happy to take advice!
so for starters. the dress is pretty simple and has a belt looped around for embellishment. it’s got long billowy sleeves and is scoop neck.
like i said pretty basic. so i found THIS tutorial for this guenevere dress through pinterest that i think will work quite nicely, i just won’t cut the slit on the shoulder.
i haven’t quite decided what method to use…i have seen a few different tutorials on how you can make them from scratch completely out of things like card board, hot glue, duct tape, and other random things. like THIS tutorial on oishari. it’s such a cool tutorial!
…or i’ve seen some pretty cool maleficent horns being sold online and i might just cave and buy those, haha.
the things i am the most excited for is making the wings!!
i found this video that explains the whole process (please excuse the language):
and that tutorial references THIS one.
i have absolutely no idea how it will work out but…let’s hope it works out well!!
some of the minor accessories that i need to do are:
– gold ring
– gold bracelets
– wrap belt
– pointy ear/elf ear things
-leather/feather shoulder piece
